I would like to see a cheap Panasonic 8-14mm 'kit like' lens
6 months ago

In the recent past Panasonic has delivered a a nice set of small and light walkaround-zooms, with the 14-42mm mk II kit lens and the 45-150mm telezoom. I am very happy with the quality of those lenses.

What I am missing, is a small, light, slow 8-14mm zoom to use on a holiday. It would have to be positioned below the Olympus 9-18mm; as small as that lens, with the same build quality as the Pana 14-42mm mk II, with a plastic bayonet and probably not even with image stabilization. I would buy it immediately to complete my holiday walkaround set (now I am leaning towards the Olympus).

I was intrigued by the new Canon 10-18mm wide angle zoom lens, which is basically the same thing for Canon DSLR's (where they already deliver the 18-55mm kit lens and the 55-250mm telezoom with the same build characteristics).

Am I the only one missing this lens from the Panasonic lineup?
